ADAPTING TO DANISH CULTURE 101

Meet Aleks who studies International Business & Marketing at SDU. In the 47th episode of Humans of SDU, we talk to Aleks about his journey to getting to Denmark from Bulgaria. 

  • Which country did he originally plan to move to with his girlfriend?
  • Where did he do his Bachelors?
  • Why did he choose Odense?

How did we find Aleks?

We at Humans of SDU seem to have several connections to Aleks! Firstly, he is Sofie’s friend and lives on the same street as her. Moreover, he works at EuroDeli so they talked for quite a bit. One thing led to another, and we got Aleks to share his story with us. It was only while recording the episode that Franka realized one of her best friends knows Aleks as well. Oh, how wonderful it is to be an international!

“I was just shocked by how clean it is, that was the first thing I noticed. Another thing was how the roads were so nice. I guess they had holes somewhere, I just hadn’t found them yet. It was so mindblowing how neat everything was and how good the infrastructure was. Also how can there be bike lanes everywhere – this is like from another world to me!”

ALEKS

Both hosts of this episode, Franka and Sofie, are international students here in Denmark so finding things to talk about with Aleks was not a problem at all. We bonded over the similarities in our journeys coming here, the culture shock we experienced as well as the differences between our home countries and Denmark. In fact, we had so many things to talk about that we stayed talking for almost two hours after we finished filming this Humans of SDU episode!
